City Paper is not for tourists
In this week’s NEW, REDESIGNED, MORE COLORFUL City Paper, you’ll find:
- For your Easter Sunday, the Washington City Paper guide to alternative Christian enlightenment, with your guide, Service Industry’s Aaron Leitko.
- Jason Cherkis on the D.C. Jail’s ongoing problem with not releasing inmates that have been freed. Last week, a federal judge slammed the District for not fixing a chronic problem.
- In Loose Lips: James Jones does an interview with ex-community services head Merrit Drucker. What he has to say about the supposedly services-friendly Adrian Fenty may surprise you.
- In Cheap Seats: Dave McKenna on a secret homebuilt skateboarders’ park tucked into a Shaw warehouse. Until it suddenly closed down last month, it was the center of a remarkable creative scene.
- In Show & Tell: Jessica Gould on a literal shitstorm down at the Big Hunt. And is the end of the Smithsonian Jazz Cafe nigh?
- In Young & Hungry: Tim Carman on Montsouris, a new bistro in Dupont Circle.
- The debut of Ask Bob!
- Plus film, music, lots of theater, books, and more
